As a part of living a healthier lifestyle and just a goal of trying out new recipes, I took some of my spare time last night and incorporated a new turmeric milk recipe into my arsenal of recipes and added a new flavor to my infused water.

Here is a picture of the results :

Infused water:

I chopped up about  3-6 lemon wedges, 7-9 cucumber slices, and added  a tsp of ground ginger, and just some good ol’ H20. Store overnight in fridge  for maximum infusion flavor and enjoy!

Turmeric milk:

A cup of vanilla almond milk, a tbsp of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a tsp of  raw organic sugar cane. Shake well for about 2 min to ensure all ingredients are well mixed. You can either warm up the milk or drink it cold. I warmed it up and it tasted absolutely delicious. I am trying to replace my caffeine fix for coffee with herbal teas and other warm drink recipes. This recipe came in handy just in time and I didn’t even have any caffeine crashes without coffee and this had a nice smooth, spicy but sweet taste. You can adjust the recipe as you see fit. It will come out a bright yellow color, even though from  my picture it appears a warm brown. #lightingprobs

Both turmeric and infused water have natural detox and anti-inflammatory properties so it’s even better that these drinks taste great and are great for you!

What are some of your favorite health food drinks or smoothies? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
